Sandvik displayed some of its newest innovations in surface drilling, rock tools, stationary crushing and screening, and parts and services at ConExpo-Con/Agg.
Sandvik launched Ranger DX910i, its latest flagship top-hammer surface drill rig, together with new drilling tools.

The company also displayed its electric concept surface drill rig, which demonstrates advanced technologies that will be featured on future Sandvik surface rigs to support more sustainable and energy-efficient drilling. It will also showcase its Leopard DI650i, a surface drill simulator and the RockPulse system for optimizing Ranger drilling results.
Sandvik also showcased its latest rock tools offerings including the Tundo RH650 down-the-hole hammer, Sandvik Alpha 340 top-hammer drilling tools, which feature an entirely new asymmetric thread, as well as LT90 top hammer drilling tools.
